    I worked at Roche full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are very good, and competitive. The Roche quality system is the best in the industry. Good design processes.

    Cons

    It's junior high school with money! There are several immature cliques and backstabbers. Management uses hearsay and rumor to evaluate employees. I wasted prime years of my career working at this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have a problem, talk *directly* to the employee! Don't make employees guess what you want!

    Former Employee - Internal Communications Consultant in Indianapolis, IN
    Former Employee - Internal Communications Consultant in Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at Roche part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was very competitive, the Indianapolis site has many nice facilities, and many employees had been working there for several years. There was a since of loyalty and security with the company.

    Cons

    Everything was very traditional, especially the cubical environment I worked in. It was very much a 'clock in, clock out' culture. The size of the company made it difficult to get things done without going up a fairly sizable chain of command.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should try to engage with employees a bit more. Those I worked with seemed overworked, so it was understandably tough for them to socialize much.

    Pros

    This is specific to RMS - the Roche Pleasanton location.

    None

    Cons

    Sr. Management is very sleazy and nonstop pathological lying is the culture. They will push subpar/incomplete products out the door only to collect bonus $$ - then spend $$ millions having to redo or correct critical design errors ultimately taking years to correct.

    Work/Life balance is nonexistent and travel requirements are significantly higher than competitive /peer companies.

    Leadership style is "fear" based -- "Lie to customers or be fired" is the SOP

    RMD should be considered an embarrassment to Roche Holdings in terms of integrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the pathological lying
    Stop pushing products out the door that will fail for the first 3 years or more until fixed or finished
